read your articles every day for the past year or two. you have educated me. you have enhanced my knowledge of a lot of things that i have heard that comes out of the republicans or conservative talk-show hosts by criticize obama. after reading your article, i found out what i hear on a rush limbaugh and the michael savage show was absolutely a lie. host: you give us an example? caller: a whole solyndra tuition. i found out the facts by reading your article in our local paper. the whole solyndra thing started with the bush administration. guest: thanks for the kind words. i am glad that you are reading them in your local paper one thing we are trying to do, as much as we can, is get our work out in different ways. we have partnerships with television stations. have partnerships with newspapers. the one you are read for into in atlanta uses the truth-o-meter on state and local officials. i am glad to hear you are reading our work and their work and i am happy our word is getting out host:politifact looked at issues -- looks at issues like energy. what to do find overall? guest: a l
. there is a disadvantage to a piecemeal bill, if you pass, for example, issues for educated people to get a visa, and they're taking care of, you lose a certain amount of support for the other issues. i do not think we should decide that. i think the senator is doing a great service by raising this issue. i think our colleagues at this meeting, i met this morning with the person -- he and i actually talk a lot. i believe we should move forward on all of the arrangements so that the hill will develop an understanding about all of these issues and finally decide whether they will do it in one, too, or three pieces. that is the least of our worry. the fact is they do it. we will continue to talk about a comprehensive bill. >> i am delighted that senator rubio is helping folks take the issue of immigration reform as seriously as he is taking it. he is providing leadership on that and we are appreciative. i think it is great to see movement on both sides of the aisle. whether or not it is comprehensive or individual pieces is to be determined by leadership in the house and senate in consultation with the presi
have some extraordinary assets in this country. we have a highly educated and motivated work force that in many respects outperforms, not out educated about from a point of view workers in virtually every effort country. we have the most efficient capital markets in the world. our companies have the lowest cost of capital of any companies anywhere around the globe. we have a spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation and capitalist system and commitment to a capitalist system that is the envy of virtually every other country in the world, and we also have increasingly as elude it to in the earlier panel have always had a very strong natural resources, but with shale oil and gas and the incredible strength of our agricultural industry we have a great natural resources as well so there's a lot to be bullish about in this country in terms of our economic opportunities, but this fiscal deficit, our fiscal policy is an enormous cloud on us reaching that potential and i work on the investment banking industry i used to be in the money-management industry. there is a phrase that sometimes
, six teachers and educators were taken from us at gun point. an act of senseless and incomprehensible violence struck at the heart of our families, of our schools, of our communities across the country. earlier this month shortly after newtown, all members of congress took an oath to protect and defend the constitution and the american people. to protect and defend, that is our first responsibility. today leaders of the house democratic caucus have come together to fulfill that duty to confront the challenge of gun violence in our society to enact, to ensure the safety and security of our communities. under the leadership of congressman thomson, mike thompson, our gun violence prevention task force keeps growing in number. our colleagues are submitting recommendations for legislation, the task force is working with outside organizations, and sharing the latest information on gun violence and steps we can take and must take to end it. today to strengthen the efforts of this task force and our democratic caucus, we will hear from americans with personal and professional experiences with
to succeed in today's market place. despate progress in education, too many of our schools are still lagging behind, some way behind and especially heart breaking to this father, one in five hoosier children lives in poverty. that is simply unacceptable. [applause] with so many families and business struggling just to get by we have no choice but to remain bold. we have to do better and we will do better and doing better starts with the right priorities. by adopting a road map that says yes to our future and believes in the ununlimited potential of our people and it start by making job creation job one in this assembly and all over this state. [applause] that's why on day one of our administration i signed a moratorium on any regulations to ensure that indiana is not burdening hoosiers employ remembers unnecessary red tape and that's why we proposed a job budget last week. our budget is honestly balanced holds the line on spending, funds our priorities, builds our reserves and it lets hard working hoosiers keep more of what they earned. now let's be clear: government doesn't create jo
health in terms of research, education, and policy. >> when you look at what has been that in the past, it has not got this very far. we have to do something different. we believe a national discussion, putting aside preconceived notions will have us move forward as a nation. >> for more, we're joined by colin goddard. on april 16, 2007, he was shot four times when a gunman armed with a 22 caliber semiautomatic handgun, 9 millimeter semiautomatic, went on a rampage at virginia tech. 32 people were killed. he and 16 others were injured. colin goddard now works with the brady campaign to prevent gun violence. he just returned from meeting with survivors and their parents in newtown. the british campaign was the first trip to meet vice president joe biden's task force on guns, and later colin is headed to the white house to attend president of his announcement on gun-control. he is joining us from washington, d.c.. welcome back to "democracy now!" though the announcement has not been made as of this broadcast, president obama says he is calling for a ban on assault weapons, and high-capac
career she has shown a constant and loving commitment to education and improving the lives of children. in addition to having served as superintendent of schools in three different connecticut communities, janet has served as a teacher, a school counselor, and a school psychologist. i met janet in the fire house which was the emergency center of newtown, connecticut on the afternoon of the shooting. janet was grieving. she was there with parents of children who didn't know if their children were going to come home. as we know, 20 of them did not. the next morning this brave woman sat around a conference table with members of her community and began plan on how to protect those children and their family. how to reopen the school and get children back to learning. she was putting sandy hook community first, the teachers, the children, and those families. she did it all the time with her heartbroken for her friend who is were cut down on that terrible day. janet, i know you will provide invaluable expertise to us. you are an expert on children, on teaching, but most importantly, and for o
are back in class. using a middle school building in a nearby town for now, while educators figure out the future of the school district and how to keep the children of sandy hook together. >> we're very strong. we're a strong community. you know, we're going to have our bumps along the way. but we're working hard together, and that's what's important. >> one month later, with a national debate on gun control under way, some families in newtown are eager to have a voice in the debate. >> the horror of knowing that these are innocent 6-year-olds and 7-year-olds for the most part who were so grievously harmed and killed by a man who was flawed in his judgment, had access to an assault weapon and other weapons as well. we need to have courage as a society to ask those hard questions. do we have the right controls in place? if not, let's take some action. >> residents of this community say they refuse to be remembered only for their loss. they hope the name newtown will be forever known not for this deadly shooting but as a turning point for change. we'll be talking throughout the evening
spend on everything from education to public safety less as a share of the economy that has been true for a generation. that is not a recipe for growth. we have to do more to stabilize the finances over the medium and long-term, and also spur more growth in the short term. i have said i am hoping to making modest adjustments to programs like medicare to protect them for future generations. i also said we need more revenue for tax reform by closing loopholes for the wealthiest americans. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we consult the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. it turns out the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate over this issue, and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they do not think it is fair to ask a senior to pay more for his or her health care or a scientist to shut down like that saving research so that a multi millionaire investor can take less in tax rates then a

charts. now the way we are going, in terms of the percentage of g.d.p., what we spend on education, what we spend on health research, what we spend on so many necessary programs in this country is going to go down. the trend line is already there. what the republicans are essentially saying is to push it further. have further consequences in terms of health research. does that make sense? do the american people want that? the answer is no. we have to have balance. the problem within the republican conference of the house is there is too much imbalance. host: do you agree with this editorial -- guest: no one is suggesting relying only on taxation of the very wealthy. that is a sham target. no one is saying that. but let me point out, if we look at what has happened to middle-income families -- and i mentioned what is happening with the 401-k requirements, they're now dipping into their retirement on a massive basis. in 2010, the top 1% received over 90% of the income growth. that represents basically a very -- i represent basically a very middle-class district. i know the struggle to stay
dealing with the fiscal crisis. it's about education, about research and development, it's about controlling our energy future. all of these are part of the equation. and we can't just do one piece of it, and we can't let that piece prevent us or become a smoke screen for not acting on the others. so that is the challenge. how do you put that puzzle together, move forward in a balanced way, so we're funding those kinds of priorities that we need to grow? >> it's interesting, doris, as you look at the historical sweep as well. here is a very toxic atmosphere in washington. a carryover of, you know, difficult debates. and the president who's popular, has a unified party, but also seems reluctant to go out on a limb on some big areas where he thinks he's not going to get much cooperation from republicans. >> i'm not sure that's true. i think gun control. he came out with sweeping proposals. i mean, that's certainly out on a limb. you're not going to get a lot of support perhaps from republicans. but his idea, i think, is that if you educate the country -- you know, when he talked to
for the national education association one of the proud sponsors of the "full-court press," ramon a oliver. thank you for coming in? >> thank you for having me. >> how is our good friend dennis van roekel. >> he is fabulous. >> he is a party animal you know. it's early for him. >> this is his normal time when he is unand around. >> it's true. he does come in pretty early. >> he has been in often. right? at this hour. >> yeah. he is still the math teacher at heart. he is up at the crack of dawn getting ready to teach. >> i guess you can't take that schedule out of a teacher. >> no. not at all. we have the whole team here this morning, peter ogburn dan henning. phil bachus has the phones and cyprian, videographer extraordinaire. before we get back to the issue of guns and schools, very interesting. it surprised me yesterday, an announcement by the american cancer society. this is dr. lynn lichtenfeldt on some amazing progress in this area. no cure yet, but progress. >> the biggest good news is that since 1991, we have had a 20% decline in cancer death ra
't be where they are without having public education and building roads and everything. and you need to ask your g.o.p. where is yoush leader mitt romney. seems like he dropped out of sight. on the guns, i think they need to put inshunes on a gun like you do a car. host: so often we focus on the u.s. debt or deficit, we have exceeded now the dealt limit of $16.4 trillion. you can see in the upper left-hand side the debt clock. difficult choices on the debt if the u.s. think it's ceiling. the piece points out by mid february or early march the united states could face an unprecedented default unless it raises the debt ceiling. that was from tim geithner. further into the body of the "new york times" story i want to is share with you some of the numbers "the new york times" points out today. that could happen as early as february 15, if that happens by february 15 or early march, according to the by partisan policy center in analysis of what the government expects is $8 billion in revenue that day but it has $52 billion in spending that day, $6.8 billion in tax refunds, $3.5 in federal salari
and education and job training and science and medical research -- all the things that help us grow. now, step by step, we've made progress towards that goal. over the past two years, i've signed into law about $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two weeks ago, i signed into law more than $600 billion in new revenue by making sure the wealthiest americans begin to pay their fair share. when you add the money that we'll save in interest payments on the debt, all together that adds up to a total of about $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction over the past two years -- not counting the $400 billion already saved from winding down the wars in iraq and afghanistan. so we've made progress. we are moving towards our ultimate goal of getting to a $4 trillion reduction. and there will be more deficit reduction when congress decides what to do about the $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts that have been pushed off until next month. the fact is, though, we can't finish the job of deficit reduction through spending cuts alone. the cuts we've already made to priorities other than medicare, medicaid, social s
, we must act now. for grace. for the 25 other innocent children and devoted educators who had so much left to give. for the men and women in big cities and small towns of fall victim to senseless violence each and every day. for all the americans who are counting on us to keep them safe from harm. let's do the right thing. let's do the right thing for them and for this country that we love so much. thank you. i'm going to sign these orders. [applause] [applause] [applause] >> in president obama's proposals, he calls for background checks on all gun buyers, a ban on high-capacity magazines and federal funds for police officers a couple schools. these require congressional approval. he also used his presidential authority to enact 23 measures that do not require the backing of lawmakers. the second actions include ordering federal agencies to make data available for background checks, the atf, and directing the centers for disease control to research gun violence. after president obama announced his new legislation and executive orders, philadelphia mayor michael nutter and family membe
, but making sure that we have a conversations in our public squares and arenas that we are educating each other about what is effective. like background checks. we know they are effective. if we are talking about how important they are, and if we can create a community aware, around these alternatives whether it is internet sales or gun show sales, and if we make them less likely to be be options for people to purchase, and if we create an environment where you are not going to have a gun show in our community, that is really all we are allowed to do. >> and let me make a push, because that seems right to many, but my concern about the prohibition areas, in the all-out ban, and also leading for the supreme court to have a stronger position on the second amendment, you get into an 18th amendment prohibition problem and the handguns are easily that people have them and easily hidden and creates a black market for them, so i love the language of the culture change, because that is what we did for cigarettes. we made it harder to smoke in public and sued the companies to pay to educate people
of violence into a culture of education and a culture of peacefulness? it takes money. we here in congress have that ability. preventing mass shootings by way of banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, certainly something we should do. we need to get at the issue of violence that affects us with respect to handguns used primarily in inner-city areas to kill people. i am not advocating for a ban on handguns. do not get me wrong. i will say we need to address the issue of violence in our culture. i would like to know what kinds of resources are available to help students and help people in the community, adults, who have an emotional or mental disorders and whether or not we need to put more resources into that area. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. thank you for being here for your amazing testimony. i want to follow up on the mental health question as well. i do not know if you could identify. immediate steps cities and schools can take to identify -- there is no other place for them to go. many people who could benefit from treatment are incarcerated and on the other han
devoted my entire career to is educationing children. so the voices of children who are not afraid to speak their minds are really pure, and they need to be listened to by all the people who make these important decisions. no -- there is no amendment that says that children have a >> this is our first task as a society. keeping our children safe. this is how we will be judged. >> the president lays it all on the line for new gun laws. >> this will not happen unless the american people demand it. >> and he calls out the right wing machine that wants to kill reform. >> tonight, congresswoman jackie sleer of california on the president's major announcement. dan gross on the brady campaign and on whether the president's campaign can work. michael steele on the dispicable nra ad attacking the president's kids. >> plus, obama for america is getting the fan back together to fight the nra. >> it is time to get activated, again. >> former obama deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter joins me tonight. and congresswoman jan shakowski on the return of the public option. >> good to have you w
, education. isn't that exactly what the president and the vice president have delivered today? >> that's right. the public supports virtually all measures except for putting armed security in schools. that's the one thing that doesn't poll well. and i think that's the point. the politics of this have changed dramatically, martin. i was on the floor in 1994 when we passed the assault weapons ban on the house floor. i had to manage the effort for the democrats in 1998. and the politics of this have changed dramatically since newtown. things are just no longer the way they were before newtown. a universal background check right now is about an 80/20 issue. the issue of clips, large capacity magazines and gun registration is a 70/30 issue. assault weapons are a 60/40 issue. the president senses that. the stage craft today with the children behind the president was superb. in addition to the stats that i just mentioned, the number of people killed every day. we've had 83 children killed since the newtown massacre. >> yes. >> and so i think the key here that the white house recognizes is tha
that we protect children, but we also need to extend that obviously to higher education. what chris said was well-said which is that campuses should be a place where a student like the one on that phone call should be able to go and study english and not worry about having to dive under her desk or, you know, behind corners of the building to avoid getting injured seriously. so, you know, i'm on the education and workforce committee. we actually just met this afternoon. the chairman of the committee, mr. klein from minnesota, a republican, made a pledge that we are going to be holding hearings on school violence, and, you know, i'm trying to be an optimist that, you know, the president's words yesterday, the willingness in the house to actually have these issues brought up for consideration, are going to produce some real results that will make this a safer country. >> because this is a public health problem, isn't it? i mean, gun violence is, you know, no less significant in its impact than public health issues like obesity in this country. i mean, this is just out of control, isn't it?
there and utilize resources such as education systems, our community jobs programs, others that might allow people to go in different direction. the unfortunate and very tragic incident in connecticut in sandy hook elementary school of course heightened everybody's awareness of what violence can really be all about. and as we have been not only responding, reacting to this national tragedy that i think president obama has adequately described as broken all of our hearts, and in every funeral that has taken place, for those 20 innocent children and six innocent adults in the school districts, and school administrators, we obviously have shared in that very tragic event, all of us. it has touched everybody across this country. san francisco is no different. and i have shared that emotional experience with the supervisor and everybody here, in our law enforcement, and in our health department as well. the question for us, then, is what do we do about it? and not only can we share in this tragedy and signal our sympathies to the families as we've done, but we've got to do something more. and this is w
children and devoted educators who had so much left to give. for the men and women in big cities and small towns who fall victims to senseless violence each and every day. for all the americans who are counting on us to keep them safe from harm. let's do the right thing. let's do the right thing for them, and for this country that we love so much. [applause] thank you. we'll sign these orders. bill: 33 days since sandy hook. this is frankly lightening speed for washington to move. the president with at least four young americans, at least three of them wrote letters to the white house. the president's plan includes in broad terms a universal background check. that is what he is proposing. banning military assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. those with more than 10 bullets. making schools safer and increasing access to mental health services. he is now signing what amounts to 23 executive actions, but what is not clear is how much of what is proposed today must go through congress, and how much will be executed to the orders the president is signing now. for more on that, want to b
, and the way we've done it in cycling, to the best of our abilities, is through education, through getting young kids and teaching them the dangers of it, educating them on reaching the edge. no matter what high level athlete are you, you will look to the edge. if kid are guided to the edge in bad ways before, you have to guide them to the edge in more healthy ways, and that's the future of the sport and what he can set in motion if he does it effectively. >> we could talk with you for -- wow. wow. great to have you. we appreciate your time. we have to take a short break. ahead this morning, facebook not just for status updates. a new search begengine. does it dig too far into your privacy? that straight ahead. >>> welcome back to "starting point." i'm christine romans minding your business. stocks down over concern of global growth. jpmorgan, 5$5.7 billion on profit, better than they thought it would be. jamie dimon's bonus cut by more than half to $10 million because of the london whale trading loss. goldman sachs, higher earnings and revenue for the fourth quarter. up 2% ahead of the op
of education, research and development, innovation energy. there are things we can do about it but we have to do them together as a country. that's our goal. >> i do think it's important to put in context and remember just how dark the days were four years ago and how in the middle of that meltdown, people were thinking about going to caves and getting spam and guns. it was dark. not only the president, but the president working with george w. bush and others really pitched in and had to make very tough decisions and a lot of hard votes that got a lot of people unelected from office to get us through that. >> when we got our first economic briefings, i wanted to get some spam and go into a cave. i know what you're talking about. >> that's why this is such an opportunity, though, for the president right now. the problems we're talking about are structural. they've been there for a long time. this declining middle class has gone on for two decades. it isn't just the recession. that means investing. this is where the problem of the debt comes in. if you're going to get bet
